Blue Team Handbook: SOC, SIEM, and Threat Hunting Use Cases provides the security practitioner with numerous field notes on building a security operations team and mining data sources to get the maximum amount of information out of them with a threat hunting approach. The author shares his fifteen years of experience with SIEMs and security operations after implementing five major platforms, integrating over one hundred data sources into various platforms, and running a MSSP practice.This book covers the topics below using a "zero fluff" approach as if you hired him as a security consultant and were sitting across the table with him (or her). Topics covered include:* The book begins with a discussion for professionals to help them build a successful business case and a project plan, and deciding on SOC tier models. There is also a list of tough questions you need to consider when proposing a SOC, as well as a discussion of layered operating models. * It then goes through numerous data sources that feed a SOC and SIEM and provides specific guidance on how to use those data sources. Most of the examples presented were implemented in one organization or another. These uses cases explain how to use a SIEM and how to use the data coming into the platform, a question that is poorly answered by many vendors.* An inventory of Security Operations Center (SOC) Services.* Several business concepts are also introduced, because they are often overlooked by IT: value chain, PESTL, and SWOT. * Metrics.* SOC staff onboarding, training topics, and desirable skills. Along these lines, there is a chapter on a day in the life of a SOC analyst. * Maturity analysis for the SOC and the log management program. * Applying a Threat Hunt mindset to the SOC. * A full use case template that was used within two major Fortune 500 companies, and is in active use by one major SIEM vendor, along with a complete example of how to build a SOC and SIEM focused use case. You can see the corresponding discussion on YouTube - search for the 2017 Security Onion conference. * Critical topics in deploying SIEM based on experience deploying five different technical platforms for nineteen different organizations in education, nonprofit, and commercial enterprises from 160 to 30,000 personnel. * Understanding why SIEM deployments fail with actionable compensators. * Real life experiences getting data into SIEM platforms and the considerations for the many different ways to provide data. * Issues relating to time, time management, and time zones. * Critical factors in log management, network security monitoring, continuous monitoring, and security architecture related directly to SOC and SIEM.* A table of useful TCP and UDP port numbers.This is the second book in the Blue Team Handbook Series. Volume One, focused on incident response, has over 32,000 copies in print and has a 4.5/5.0 review rating!

Don Murdoch has implemented five major platforms, integrated over one hundred data sources into various platforms, and ran an MSSP practice for two years.This book covers the topics below using a "zero fluff" approach as if you hired him as a security consultant and were sitting across the table with him (or her).The book begins with a discussion for professionals to help them build a successful business case and a project plan, decide on SOC tier models, anticipate and answer tough questions you need to consider when proposing a SOC, and considerations in building a logging infrastructure. The book goes through numerous data sources that feed a SOC and SIEM and provides specific real world guidance on how to use those data sources to best possible effect. Most of the examples presented were implemented in one organization or another. These uses cases explain on what to monitor, how to use a SIEM and how to use the data coming into the platform, both questions that Don found is often answered poorly by many vendors.

The availability and security of many services we rely upon—including water treatment, electricity, healthcare, transportation, and financial transactions—are routinely put at risk by cyber threats. The Handbook of SCADA/Control Systems Security is a fundamental outline of security concepts, methodologies, and relevant information pertaining to the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and technology that quietly operate in the background of critical utility and industrial facilities worldwide. Divided into five sections, the book examines topics comprising functions within and throughout industrial control systems (ICS) environments. Topics include: Emerging trends and threat factors that plague the ICS security community Risk methodologies and principles that can be applied to safeguard and secure an automated operation Methods for determining events leading to a cyber incident, and methods for restoring and mitigating issues—including the importance of critical communications The necessity and reasoning behind implementing a governance or compliance program A strategic roadmap for the development of a secured SCADA/control systems environment, with examples Relevant issues concerning the maintenance, patching, and physical localities of ICS equipment How to conduct training exercises for SCADA/control systems The final chapters outline the data relied upon for accurate processing, discusses emerging issues with data overload, and provides insight into the possible future direction of ISC security. The book supplies crucial information for securing industrial automation/process control systems as part of a critical infrastructure protection program. The content has global applications for securing essential governmental and economic systems that have evolved into present-day security nightmares. The authors present a "best practices" approach to securing business management environments at the strategic, tactical, and operational levels.
The Operator Handbook takes three disciplines (Red Team, OSINT, Blue Team) and combines them into one complete reference guide. The book contains 123 individual cheat sheet references for many of the most frequently used tools and techniques by practitioners. Over 400 pages of content to assist the most seasoned cybersecurity veteran or someone just getting started in the career field. The goal of combining all disciplines into one book was to remove the artificial barriers that only certain knowledge exists within a "Team". The reality is today's complex digital landscape demands some level of knowledge in all areas. The "Operator" culture should mean a well-rounded team member no matter the "Team" you represent. All cybersecurity practitioners are Operators. The Blue Team should observe and understand Red Team tactics, Red Team should continually push collaboration with the Blue Team, and OSINT should continually work to peel back evidence of evil doers scattered across disparate data sources. In the spirit of having no separation, each reference is listed in alphabetical order. Not only does this remove those team separated notions, but it also aids in faster lookup. We've all had the same experience where we knew there was an "NMAP Cheat Sheet" but did it fall under Networking, Windows, or Tools? In the Operator Handbook it begins with "N" so flip to the N's section. Also almost every topic is covered in "How to exploit X" and "How to defend X" perspectives. Tools and topics covered: Cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP), Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, DevOps (Docker, Kubernetes), OSINT, Ports, Forensics, Malware Resources, Defender tools, Attacker tools, OSINT tools, and various other supporting tools (Vim, iptables, nftables, etc...). This handbook was truly meant to be a single source for the most common tool and techniques an Operator can encounter while on the job. Search Copy Paste L33t.
